Jewish Continuity: Policy Statement and Action Plan

American Jewish Committee (AJC), December 8, 1997

The American Jewish Committee Board of Governors adopted the following policy statement and action plan on dealing with the widely-proclaimed crisis of Jewish Continuity. They state that the goal of continuity efforts should be development of knowledgeable Jews who can make informed choices about the nature of their commitment to Judaism and the Jewish people. In a free society, many will choose to leave, and for that reason some losses are virtually inevitable. Our goal should be to ensure that the choices Jews make are informed choices rather than out of ignorance. More knowledgeable Jews are, in all likelihood, going to choose to be more committed Jews.
